Getting ready for winter, p. 52
Getting Ready for Winter52 My car is greased and checked My furnace is called to account The bird feeders are up And filled with suet and seed Today I bought new boots Short and warm and cleated So I won't slip on the ice I made my cranberry pudding And steamed it in the steamer I turned on all the lights at once In the living room I bought two tape recorders and microphones So I can exchange letters With my blind friend far south Getting ready for winter For the dark that is coming For the long, dark time.
